The night before the big game, the Coach is up late, tweaking the playbook. This was created shooting the image through a piece of plexiglass, upon which the footbal diagram was drawn. There were some major scratches in the plexiglass that I had to remove via stamping, healing brush, dust and scratch removal and burning. I also editted out some of the play that was obstructing the Coach's face. The change to black and white gives the image a classic, noir look to me.

I agree with Jessica. This is a superb piece of work. The black and white tones are excellent; the POV is original and very effective, and the eyes and expression are wonderful. #374021
